L. and I both decided (before we met each other) that we were done having babies - I went to the extent of having my tubes tied when I had my c/s with Emersyn... Pregnancy isn't good for me on a mental level - I have an anxiety disorder that goes out of control when I'm pregnant. Hormones I guess?

But.. lately.. I've been thinking how nice it'd be to have a baby that is OURS, something to join our two little families together, once we're married. I hadnt' mentioned it to L. because I wasn't sure if it was just a fleeting idea, OR if it was something she'd be keen to do... I know I'd be perfectly happy NOT having another baby, so decided to just leave it...

But then she told me she'd had a dream about us with a baby - and scarily I had had a dream about us having a baby that same night.. and we started talking about it, and that it is something we've both been thinking about... The more we talk about it, the more stupidly excited I get at the prospect of US having a baby together. We talked about the cons, but then talked about the pros, and the pros were a lot more strong than the cons. So we think we're gonna try for a baby! She will be the one who physically gets pregnant, and we will find a sperm donor - then do it using the ol' turkey baster method.....

Anyway... I'ts pretty exciting for me, because I never thought I'd be in the place where I'd even want to consider another child... but now it just seems right and... like something I really want to do with her.........

that would be very cool to be in the same DDC! I think what put me off in the past WAS that I'd done it twice by myself - and I had a feeling that if I got pregnant again, it'd mean doing it by myself again... The lack of support was what really put me off - and I think it was doing it alone that caused my anxiety to worsen, etc etc. but I know that Lauriel is THE ONE, and that we're in it for the long run.... and the thought of having a baby with her, and parenting our *own* child together... it just seems like the logical next step...

I miss you Emma. We used to talk about all this...were close friends. Now, I gotta come here or fb to catch up on your life. At least you're open, and share your life here!

With that said...lol.
I am very happy for you and L! You will both make an amazing couple! And I can't wait til you reach the next chapter in your lives! Makes me soooo happy and proud of you! I've been in your life for so long now, that I get to see how you're evolving. And, you finally found the true love you sooooooo much needed and deserve! At last! I can't be more happier for you! I need some of that happiness for myself! LOL

Thank you Tasha_Mae for my spooky siggy
